Great news for Eagles fans as LeSean McCoy is ready to make his return from a nasty concussion in Week 16, according to the Eagles' Insider account.

Brown ran for 347 yards and two touchdowns in his first two games starting in McCoy's place, but he amassed just 40 yards in the team's last two games, failing to reach the end zone. He also battled fumbling issues, losing three fumbles in McCoy's stead.

McCoy and the Eagles face the Redskins Sunday.

UPDATE: Tuesday, Dec. 11 at 9:39 a.m. ET

LeSean McCoy (concussion) reportedly will not play in Thursday's contest against the Bengals, according to Philadelphia Inquirer's Zach Berman:

Michael Vick and LeSean McCoy both passed their baseline ImPACT tests, a major step in their recoveries from concussions, the Eagles said. Neither practiced with the team on Monday, but there is a chance they could practice on Tuesday.

Neither will play in Thursday's game against Cincinnati - an independent neurologist must clear them first - but passing ImPACT was a major step in their recoveries.

Great news for Eagles fans about McCoy, who may be fit enough to return to practice after dealing with concussion symptoms, according to Philadelphia Inquirer reporter Jeff McLane:

Bryce Brown has showed explosiveness filling the starting role for McCoy, but has struggled with ball security. It remains to be seen whether the Eagles will use McCoy and put him at risk this late in the season. Nevertheless, it's a great sign that he's doing better.

LeSean McCoy is progressing, but unlikely to play Sunday, according to Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane:

UPDATE: Saturday, Nov. 24 at 1:15 p.m. ET

A slew of injury news has been reported by the official Eagles Insider Twitter account, and it's ominous for McCoy:

Despite playing host to the lowly Carolina Panthers, the Eagles are perhaps in even more severe despair. They will struggle to manufacture points without McCoy in the fold, who is a touchdown machine. This also won't help the transition for rookie QB Nick Foles as he continues to acclimate to the speed of the NFL game.

UPDATE: Thursday, Nov. 22 at 7:18 a.m. ET

Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer currently considers LeSean McCoy unlikely to play on Monday Night Football:

Michael Vick and LeSean McCoy were both still in Phase 1 Wednesday as they recovered from concussions and appeared unlikely to play Monday night when the 3-7 Eagles host the 2-8 Panthers.

If they can't go, their replacements will be a pair of rookies - Nick Foles making his second consecutive start at quarterback and Bryce Brown making his first career NFL start. Both took first-team repetitions Wednesday.

UPDATE: Wednesday, Nov. 21 at 12:10 p.m. ET

LeSean McCoy is still suffering from symptoms following the concussion he sustained last Sunday against the Redskins, according to Eagles Insider:

UPDATE: Monday, Nov. 19 at 12:15 p.m. ET by Timothy Rapp

After LeSean McCoy left late in Sunday's game with what was being reported as a concussion, folks in Philly feared he could be lost for at least a week with the injury. Add another injury to the insult of this season, in other words.

He still might miss time, of course, but the good news for McCoy is that coach Andy Reid doesn't believe the concussion is as serious as the one Michael Vick suffered a week ago. From Eagles Insider:

Here's to hoping both McCoy and Vick can have speedy recoveries and no reoccurrence of these injuries in the future.

According to Eagles Insider's official Twitter account, McCoy's injury is being described as a concussion:

Rich Campbell of the Washington Times tweeted the grave situation for the Eagles star following the punishing blow delivered by Redskins safety Madieu Williams:

Bleacher Report was also on the scene to capture an image of McCoy as he was carted off. The fact that he is sitting up is an encouraging sign:

The Eagles were already getting blown off the field, trailing 31-6 in the fourth quarter at the time of McCoy's injury. He only managed 15 carries for 45 yards, but did grab a team-high six catches for 67 yards in the game.

Last year's NFL leader in touchdowns hasn't found the end zone as much in 2012 for the maligned Eagles, who are going to fall to 3-7 and are all but guaranteed to miss the playoffs.

Especially with McCoy out for what could be an extended period of time, it's difficult to imagine where the Eagles will get their offense from with rookie QB Nick Foles under center. Foles had a nightmare debut start in Washington despite a favorable matchup with the Redskins secondary.

This is just yet another bad piece of news for this talented but underachieving Philadelphia team. Stay tuned for more updates on McCoy's status as the situation develops.
